    Do we have the worst attack in the league?

    Our leading goal scorer is somebody else’s fullback, we don’t have an attack. We are like a dog with no teeth, we can’t bite you but we can give you a nasty suck.

    Match Thread Aston Villa vs Everton. Saturday 14th August 12:30 KO

    Hopefully this week will see us bring in Gana or something similar and a centre forward. The sight of Solomon Rondon in an Everton shirt has to be one of the most depressing things possible.

    Match Thread Aston Villa vs Everton. Saturday 14th August 12:30 KO

    Did you see what Buendia did to us, he had the freedom to play like a superstar. Showing up in bits and pieces isn’t what playing in that position needs you have to be better than your opponent, today he was better for about 5 minutes the rest of the time he was chasing Buendia. He simply isn’t...

    Match Thread Aston Villa vs Everton. Saturday 14th August 12:30 KO

    The reality of the situation we find ourselves in is that we don’t have a Premiereship centre forward, Frank had to pick between a Division One class centre forward or a Premiership player who isn’t a focal point for the attack. He plumped for the latter. This way round if we have no impact he...

    Bamba Dieng

    Surely I can’t be the only one thinking that she has been on the tear and has been caught in a the arms of another man and this is the best excuse she could come up with.

    Confirmed Signing Amadou Onana

    With all these players coming in we definitely need to get rid of a few, we must be sailing close to the wind in FFP again this season..

    I seen he had been injured, Everton that.

    Relegation 2022/23

    I think we will be OK this season. Tarks is a big improvement on what we had, hopefully we get a few more games out of Mina. Mykolaiv will be better as he gets used to the league, hopefully Patterson will prove to be an upgrade on the aging Colema. Gana, if he joins, will be an upgrade in the...

    2021/22 Andre Gomes

    I seen a report which said we were looking for between £15 and £20 million; if our new DoF can get anything for him and get his wages of the books he will be a miracle worker. I think if he was in a slower, less physical league he could be a very useful player, Portugal does seen a good fit for him.

    Match Thread Blackpool Vs Everton Sunday 24th July 3pm kick off

    I don’t understand why we are playing Blackpool, a win here doesn’t fix anything, a draw is meaningless and if they beat us it only confirms that we are a mid table championship side. Surely we should be playing teams which are of Premier League standard, with two weeks to go to the league...

    #27 Years Campaign Press Release…

    Protesting by not supporting the Kiev game would be turned against the fan base, supporting good causes is something Everton do well, personally I wouldn’t want to see us loose sight of the things that make Everton special no matter how important it is to get rid of the Chairman and the Board...

    2021/22 Frank Lampard

    Let’s be honest, Frank Lampard didn’t save Everton but he had a hand in the club avoiding relegation. Everton as a club are at our lowest ebb in our top flight history. Frank Lampard has not caused this fall from grace, no individual player has caused this fall from grace, the blame for the mess...

    Relegation 2022/23

    I would imagine all the other teams in the league are targeting us as a chance of getting six points. Those teams in the bottom half will fight hard exceptionality when they play us this season as a win against us will give them points and will ensure that we are below them and we know that when...

    Transfer Rumour Leander Dendoncker

    While I agree that we should be going after young talented players who can step into a Premier League team and do a job, my problem is that how do you attract such players to a team that flirted with relegation last season and then sold their best player, the one who was responsible for keeping...

    2021/22 Tom Davies

    We are discussing degrees of uselessness, it is extremely difficult to say a midfielder who can’t pass the ball is worse than a defender who can’t defend or a forward who can’t score. Discussing whether Davis is worse than Rondon or Holgate is a bit like saying you would rather be stabbed than...

    2021/22 Tom Davies

    Disagree with you about Rondon, Gomez would go before Davis as would Holgate, I would also ditch Mina as he is injured more than he is fit. I can’t say anything about Patterson as he hasn’t played but given that he can’t break into a relegation threatened side I would have concerns. However it...

    2021/22 Tom Davies

    I would chain him to the dugout. If he goes who else would take over a club which just escaped relegation last year then they sell their best player to grovel around the bargain basement to try and unearth players who are going to transform the team while the people who have caused the demise of...

    2021/22 Tom Davies

    Unfortunately he is not the only Everton player who falls into this category. The really difficult thing for Frank is that if he was to draw up a list of 10 Everton players who need to be moved on Tom Davis would not be at the top of the list, he probably wouldn’t be in the top half.

    Everton Pre-Season (Tours) 2022/23 Thread

    How many low points do we have to endure before they stop becoming low points and become the norm? I don’t know the answer to that question but surely we must be getting close.
